Where can I get the Glider? I've been looking for something like that this season since my rat-L-trap bait has gotten so beat up.

I went to the beach yesterday morning to have a relaxing day of bunker chunking with my buddy. After only a couple hits in a few hours we relocated to the nearest Inlet for the top of the tide. I'd never fished there before, and nobody seemed to be doing much. My buddy turned left and walked in toward the bridges and I walked out to see what was happening at the end of the jetty. The water was still moving nicely when I got out there, and I found what looked like a perfect (safe enough and dry but close enough to cast and get fish out of the water) spot.
Apparently it was the gathering point for shoals of schoolie and sub-schoolie fish. I was using a 3/8 oz. bucktail + curly tail with a teaser and caught between 25 and 30 fish over the next hour. Lots of doubles. Only 5 of the fish were between 20 and 24", with the rest running from smaller to much smaller. I was happy. I would have had a very hard time getting any sort of large fish landed, so I'm not entirely unhappy about not hooking up to one and having my heart or a leg broken.
A guy snorkeling said he saw a good number of keeper size bass in the channel, and he speared 3 good tog, which I saw him carrying later when I walked out.

I went for my 4th kayak trip of the season yesterday in RB...it was windier that predicted but still manageable...air temps in low 60 and water temps reached over 60F for the first time...launched around 6am and stayed until 2pm...low tide in the morning did not help thus it took some time to find fish...even when I marked a decent school of fish the bite was not as desired...tried everything from plastic, metal and bucktail with pork rind...here and there I would catch a short and that was it...the depth was around 15-16ft...then I decided to start to troll 6" and 12" white mojos and that was the ticket...caught in succession 27", 31' and nice 36" bass (approximately 20lbs on boga) ...the funny part was that I caught another 18.5" keeper...a nice fluke which hit a teaser above a mojo...it was released as we out of the season...overall it was fun trip...would have stayed longer but the wind and the waves made it unpleasant...btw I heard of a big blue caught so they are here

Nice fish Comp! Had a pretty awesome night a few nights ago..Was into fish for a solid 3hrs..Landed over a doz 28 to 35in fish with some shorts mixed in..lots of bunker around and the glider did its job as usual! Biggest went 35in and dropped a few..1 that turned my treble into spaghetti along with the split ring..Been a good spring so far hope it holds up!!
